Free NHL Pick:
For the Blackkhawks it is very important for them to get off to a quick start. The Blackhawks if they are unable to get off quickly could slip back into their old habits of losing or trying to make up ground from behind and that can make it difficult for the Blackhawks. Look for Edmonton to play good in this game, but still have some rust that can really hurt the Oilers chances of winning the game here, but Chicago is inconsistent and the old habits show up again. Final Score Prediction, Edmonton Oilers win 2-1.
